Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It never quite convinces you this is anything but a fashion shoot."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"This drug drama has enough drugs to stock a hospital but precious little in the way of drama."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"The mix of a fast pace, animated moments, and the always nuts Rourke makes for an entertaining flick"
‑ Jason Gorber, Film Scouts
"Madly arranged in one ambivalent, entirely creative work that attempts not only to convey a feeling, but a sense of experience"
‑ Jordan Hiller, Bangitout.com
"Aims for the edge but eccentricity and excess take over and dominate, thus taking the rest of the film down with them."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"A placebo of a film."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"A gleefully repulsive movie."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Mesmo com seu ótimo elenco, esta cópia sem personalidade de Vamos Nessa! e Réquiem para um Sonho é o exemplo perfeito da expressão 'muito estilo para pouco conteúdo'."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"More intent on giving us a day-in-the-life presentation of some speed freaks and their hijinks than actually telling us anything about them. Their actions are meaningless."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"Boring it's not."
‑ Jurgen Fauth, About.com
"Ultimately, Spun has no more substance than American Pie II."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"A loud, disorderly descent into narcissism, a movie so in love with itself that its gaze rarely leaves the mirror."
‑ Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
"Une bien mauvaise caricature."
‑ Jean-François Vandeuren, Panorama
"Like an ex-addict reminiscing over their days of dependence, it's dead behind the eyes: hollowed out."
‑ Nev Pierce, BBC.com
"Repulsive but mesmerizing."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
